the transit agency does business. sprucing up around our region. tens of thousands of comcast nbc universal employees will volunteer today for the annual comcast cares day. we're live at one of the big events. it may be a little bit wet out there, but that's not going to stop our plans. get the umbrellas ready, because some spring showers could pop up across the region today. it's a pattern that may last into the workweek. we've got the most accurate forecast in the region in just moments. good morning. this is nbc 10 news today. i'm rosemary connors. it's 5:30 on this saturday. plenty to get to. let's begin with that weekend weather. first alert meteorologist tammy souza is in for us this morning and she is tracking those showers. tammy? >> gosh, you know what? we were hoping that today would be the dry day. i think we're going to get that tomorrow, so you may have to flip-flop your plans a bit. both days cooler than average in the upper 50s and low 60s.
but as the doppler radar begins to sweep the sky, you can see we have some scattered showers south of philadelphia. if you're up in allentown and there's nothing going on right now, you might pick up a brief shower later that kind of skirts by, but for the most part, a lot of the activity will be in south jersey, the jersey shore, and delaware. in fact, that will be the case for the next three to four days. let's take a closer look at what's going on out there. right now, we have some scattered showers that are making their way through pennsville, salem, we are looking at grassboro with some showers to the north and pretty much all of this will head off to the north and the east. a little bit farther south, dover, you'll start to clear out soon. the same for river pap very steady rainfall just moved through your area. this is the larger picture of what's going on. we have several waves of rain that will be coming through. by mid- or late morning, we get a break. most of that will stay south.
56 right now in philly and that's generally the temperature across the area. the mid-50s. winds out of the northeast at 7 miles an hour. it feels just a little cooler. we have a little bit of a windchill out there. feels like 54. at 9:00, we'll be 56. could see a spotty shower out there. that's when we could get clipped here in philly. 54 will be the feels-like. and then we go to 1:00 this afternoon, might even see a few peeks of sunshine, but mainly a spotty shower south of the city. new this morning, philadelphia police are investigating a shooting that happened not far from the campus of temple university. according to authorities, the gunman shot a man on susquehanna avenue in north philly early this morning. the shooter then took off on a bicycle. the victim is in stable condition. temple sent an alert to students to use caution and to avoid the area. slammed to the ground. a passenger says septa police went too far and he claims this is not the first time.
now he's taking his complaints to court. nbc 10's brandon hudson reports. >> [ bleep ] -- [ yelling ] >> reporter: this cell phone video is now listed in anthony barlow's lawsuit against septa police. the video, which went viral last june, shows an offer body slamming barlow to the ground outside the frankfort transportation center. do you have any lingering injuries from that? >> my wrist, when i headacshake a little bit, it bothers me. >> reporter: he says that video is one of several run-ins he's had with septa police. his lawsuit claims he was targeted after filing complaints of his own against septa police. >> i think it should be known what's going on with septa and how they're treating people. that's pretty much all i'm trying to get out of it and an apology. >> reporter: septa wouldn't comment on this story because of litigation, but last year an internal affairs investigation revealed officer matthew sinkowitz restrained barlow, saying he was trespassing and
being defiant. sinkowitz's actions were ultimately found in violation and led to disciplinary action. barlow's attorney also shared this video of an encounter between their client and another septa officer last april. it was captured on that officer's body camera. barlow was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, but a judge found him not guilty. >> i became known by the police. i feel like now when they see me, it's like, oh, barlows in the area. let's take sympathetic omething. >> reporter: barlow hopes this civil suit will clear his name and hold septa officers accountable. >> just because you have a badge or a higher paying job than somebody, doesn't mean you're better than them. now to an update you saw first on nbc 10. a breakdown in communication is the reason a 5-year-old girl was dropped off at the wrong bus stop in treanor, delaware county this week. this surveillance video shows her walking along a busy road.
you can see a stranger pull over and help her get across the street. the school district says the bus driver was a new employee and should not have let the child off without family waiting there. the district says it will work with drivers to reinforce the policies. in bucks county, contamination concerns at an ice rink are not stopping the facility from staying open. revolution ice reopened last night after warwick township temporarily shut it down earlier this week. officials with the water and sewer authority say the rink was supposed to be using township water for drinking, hand washing, and food preparation. it turns out the facility's water supply was hooked into a well that officials fear could be contaminated. the rink says its private testing shows that the water is safe. shovels and paintbrushes will get plenty of use today as thousands of volunteers show how comcast cares. this is the 16th year for the worldwide event. nbc 10's matt delucia is live in
the nicetown section where they'll get to work. >> reporter: this will be a very big day. of course, this place should look quite a bit different after all of these folks are done with that work. that work is expected to begin a little after 8:00 this morning here at the shane victorino nicetown boys and girls club. as rosemary mentioned, this is the 16th year for comcast cares day. comcast, the parent company of nbc 10. every year, we see people getting out and doing some good work. and this is a very big project. more than 100,000 people in all will be taking part to help clean up and they'll be doing these projects to help their communities. the volunteers won't be at this one spot, just here. there are going to be a thousand different projects going on throughout the country and some around the world to do things like revitalize parks, paint murals, and stock up community food banks. let's tell you what's going to
be happening here. about 200 volunteers will clean up in and around the building, picking up trash. but they'll also be renovating a multi-purpose room to create space for, how about this, the club's middle school robotics program. that's pretty interesting. along with an arts and crafts area and just within the last 30 minutes, a truck came up and dumped a large pile of dirt here. that could very well be the landscaping efforts that will be happening later on today. so a lot going on. hopefully the weather holds out. the nbc 10 team will be here and we'll be here all morning. >> a little wet weather isn't going to hurt anybody. thanks for that, matt. today volunteers will also be celebrating earth day by helping to clean up parts of gloucester county. they'll be at 19 different locations picking up litter and sprucing up the communities. . and volunteers will help to protect wildlife while cleaning up more than 70 beaches down the shore. clean ocean action will hold its annual beach sweeps this morning. volunteers of all ashes that will clean up trash that can

hate eric frein, but that does not mean we do not hold him accountable. nbc 10 will be in court for every step of the penalty phase until eric frein learns his fate. this morning, we're learning about a major security breach involving hundreds of hotels. for three months last fall, hackers stole credit and debit card information from customers who stayed with the intercontinental hotels group. they include the holiday inn, crown plazas, and other hotels. security experts say hotel guests are vulnerable, because their credit card data is shared at many points. >> if it's an older system, that information about your credit card is transmitted unencrypted between one point and another. that's where cyber criminals can steal it. >> the hotel group says it's installed new protections, but to protect yourself, experts recommend that you use a credit card instead of a debit card. that increases your chances of a refund. and always scrutinize your statement for any fraudulent activity.

kids and off you go today carrying your umbrella, because passing showers will be the forecast today. and temperatures, a little below our average. 66 is where we should be. we're not going to be there, we're going to be in the upper 50s and low 60s. the ben franklin bridge lit up so pretty out there. it's 56 right now in philly and winds are out of the northeast to about 7 miles an hour. around the area, looking at 54 right now for all of you in coatesville. hello, vineland, you're at 54. mt. pocono a little chillier at 45. and atlantic city is 53 degrees. so doppler radar sweeping the sky, nothing in the philadelphia area yet. allentown, you're still quiet, but there are showers in the offing. let's go ahead and see who's getting what out there at this hour. gloucester, you've cleared out. clayton, you're fine right now. warwich, you're getting a little bit of shower activity on the south side. wilmington, a few spotty showers around your area. the same for salem, middletown, you're getting showers and

at this, not so shabby. much of the day tomorrow is nice with clouds, a few peeks of sunshine. monday, we start to get more shower activity, and again into tuesday, a lot of that staying south of the area before this lifts across, bringing us all rain on tuesday. how much rain are we looking at? this really depicts it well. if you're down into, c'esay, ca may, you'll be looking at more rain, perhaps several inches of rain. if you're in allentown, only .2 of an inch of rain. at 10:00 today, could see a rain shower. low 60s if we get sunshine. pennsylvania suburbs, with same thing. mid-50s. maybe some 60s with sunshine. lehigh valley, you'll be in the low 50s to the mid-60s for the day. delaware valley, you'll be looking at 57 this morning with some showers, but you have a chance of showers all day. and that continues on and off throughout the day. your ten-day on 10, 61 for today, 63 tomorrow, rain on monday and tuesday, but we blast that sunshine as we head towards the end of the week.
